The TODAY stars visited New York City’s Frequency Breathwork to explore different ways to find inner peace and relaxation.
“People are looking for a different way to work now, maybe not the same eight hours a day, five days a week,” Al explained. “Maybe we are looking for a new way to find peace.”
Although Al admitted that he usually ends up falling asleep whenever he has tried guided meditation, this session proved different.
“I feel grounded, centered and extremely grateful,” he shared at the end of the class.

Hoda agreed, telling her co-hosts after their pre-recorded segment aired that it was a “very emotional and weird” experience.
“You feel just very calm like you’ve had a massage but better,” she added. “When you figure out how to do it on your own, it’s free – it’s called air, check it out!”
While Al appeared on the recorded segment, he was still absent from the live show on Monday.
